Guys, how do I check if my GPS is working? I used apps like GPS Test and Speed View, both of which failed to get a lock on any GPS satellites . I waited for about 5 minutes.
I can't check GPS using Maps because I don't have EDGE or 3G yet.
Please help me. Thanks a lot.

Which connection are you using? I am using vodafone live 2gb/month plan. I am not able to use any application (maps, market, gmail, gtalk etc) except default browser. I am able to browse from default browser. But not even from opera mini I installed. Getting some no network connection error. Any idea why it is so? I can use everything using wifi.

I have clearly stated in my earlier message that "Tracking your move and marking your path on Maps as you move".
** A network based location CAN'T do this (as its the location to the network tower with which your mobile is connected.)
GPS takes some time to get fixed.the best time for me was within 60 seconds (or less)It tracked my position in realtime with great accuracy.So, I can assure you GPS works fine for me, right from the day I have purchased this cell.
And its been a long time, i haven't switched on "network based location", coz my GPS works fine for me.
DON'T try GPS inside room, Try getting under "clear sky" (avoiding trees) and it will be great if you can have good number of satellites for your GPS.
Hope this helps.

Actually the problem is that if i uncheck use wirless networks to determine my location and try to use GPS with GPS satellites then it dosen't detect my position.
Have u checked the wireless option or not??Becuse if u have then ur location is determined by the network carriers and not the GPS satellites.Please try using GPS satellites alone and let me know whether it shows ur position or not.
Thanks in advance.

One simple fix is to create a dummy APN and switch to it when you don't need internet connectivity. Another is to kill all the data-savvy apps and turn off the auto sync option.
